Boyles doesn't have any official visits scheduled yet, but he favors Washington slightly over Oregon, Washington State, Nebraska and USC. All of his favorites have offered, except the Trojans.

"I want to develop good relationships with the coaches and not feel like I'm just another guy they recruited," Boyles said. "I want to make sure the program really wants me and will take care of me. I'm looking for the school that sticks with me until the end and wants me the most."

Thus far, he says that Washington is recruiting him the hardest. "They have a great coaching staff," Boyles said. "Coach (Ty) Willingham is really well respected and I hear from their wide receiver coach (Eric Yarber) a lot. He says that I have a good chance to play early if I work hard enough. Also, this is their second year under coach Willingham and they've really come a long way. He said that he's really impressed with how everyone has stepped up this season."

Boyles was on hand for the heartbreaking loss the Huskies suffered to USC. "USC is recruiting me," Boyles said. "They want to see some more game film and hopefully will offer after that."

Although Boyles wasn't there in person, he watched the Oregon/California game and was surprised by the result. "I was really surprised," Boyles exclaimed. "I thought it would be a very tough, close game. Oregon will be okay though. They have a great program and great coaches. They always seem to do well each year and I love their offense."

Even though they are in his top five, Boyles admits he still doesn't know too much about Nebraska. "I just like how the whole state follows the college team," Boyles said. "They are a football school. I also heard the stadium is huge, but need to learn more about them."

He reports a 2.7 core GPA and will be retaking his SAT next month. He got a 720 on his first try.
